So there you are in the middle of your hike, and this happens!

Half of the adventure is always getting there.. No matter where there is, when you are traveling with 2 four year olds and 1 three year old getting to and from your destination is quite the adventure.

This was our first trip with the new truck, and it was magical. So magical that I can honestly say the words, "we are here already?" actually came out of my mouth... As opposed to my usual looking at the clock every 20 minutes thinking to myself, are we there yet? This time about 30 minutes into the trip I turned around to see this. My girls had cuddled up on the bench and fallen asleep.

Thank goodness the truck did amazing, and so did the driver!

So there you are in the middle of your hike, thinking you are pretty far removed from anything and everything, and then this happens...

Somehow in the middle of our hike today we stumbled across Bonnie & Clydes getaway car. O.K. probably not their car, but a car none the less. On top of that, a cool old car! So we threw caution to the wind and let the kids climb all over the rusty car.

Our 3/4 mile hike (not including the walk to get there and then the walk back to the trailer, so probably closer to 1.5 miles in total) had the kids scaling fallen trees, going over seriously rickety bridges, and trudging through wet lands. Sorry, no pictures of those harrowing moments, I was to busy being a nervous mom to snap pictures. By the time we got to the end I was seriously impressed with my kids.

Needless to say they were all asleep by 8p.m.!!!!


  1. Looks like everyone is having a great time. Creating memories that will last a lifetime!

  2. 8 o'clock? and they are asleep? OMG! lol! hugz.
